A Forsyth County bridge over Lake Lanier is getting a replacement.

This week, the Georgia Department of Transportation announced the replacement of the bridge on Browns Bridge Road (Hwy. 369 east) over Lake Lanier’s Six Mile Creek.

The new bridge will be just north of the current bridge, which was built in 1955.

“The new structure will be constructed beside the existing structure. This will facilitate the future widening of [Hwy.] 369 in Forsyth and Hall counties.” said Brent Cook, district engineer, in a news release. “The old bridge will be removed once the new one is opened to traffic, and when the road is widened, another bridge will be built in the location of the current one.

“This will reduce traffic impacts and utilize the right of way that already exists.” The project is expected to cost $11.2 million and is projected to be completed by May 2019.

E.R. Snell of Snellville was awarded the contract.

The bridge replacement was one of 16 infrastructure improvements awarded totaling $34.2 million for resurfacing and maintenance of 166 miles of state roads.
